Biotech ICL

What is Biotech ICL?

Biotech ICL, short for “Implantable Collamer Lens,” is a cutting-edge vision correction technology used to treat various refractive vision problems, such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Unlike traditional eyeglasses or contact lenses, Biotech ICL is a surgically implanted, biocompatible lens that is placed inside the eye, specifically in front of the eye’s natural lens but behind the iris. This positioning allows the ICL to work in harmony with the eye’s natural focusing system to correct vision.


The key advantage of Biotech ICL is its ability to provide clear and stable vision without the need for removing corneal tissue, making it an attractive option for individuals with thin corneas or those who are not suitable candidates for laser eye surgery. This procedure is typically quick and minimally invasive, offering rapid visual recovery and a high degree of predictability in terms of visual outcomes. Biotech ICL has gained popularity for its effectiveness in achieving vision correction with enhanced comfort and quality of life for many patients.

Types of Biotech ICL

Biotech ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) is a brand of implantable lenses used for vision correction. There are several types and variations of Biotech ICL lenses designed to address different vision issues and patient needs. Some of the common types include:

  • Toric ICL: Toric ICLs are designed to correct astigmatism in addition to myopia or hyperopia. They have a special toric design that can rotate within the eye to align with the astigmatism axis for precise correction.
  • V4c ICL: The V4c (Visian for correction) ICL is a standard version used to correct myopia and hyperopia. It’s a versatile option for a wide range of refractive errors.
  • EVO Visian ICL: The EVO Visian ICL is an advanced version with a central hole (a “hole ICL”), designed to improve the flow of natural eye fluids. This can reduce the risk of complications like elevated intraocular pressure.
  • Collamer® CentraFLOW Technology: This technology is incorporated into some Biotech ICLs, including the EVO Visian ICL, to maintain the natural balance of eye fluid and reduce the risk of cataracts or glaucoma.
  • Visian ICL for Keratoconus: Some Biotech ICLs are specifically tailored for patients with keratoconus, a progressive eye condition. These lenses are designed to provide visual improvement for individuals with both keratoconus and myopia or hyperopia.
